Veggie Pride Parade NYC

I was up bright and early this sunny Sunday morning to head into NYC for the 3rd annual Veggie Pride Parade. I met up with the NYC Vegan Eatup group at Sacred Chow in the West Village for some awesome bunchy goodness.

Big thanks to Sacred Chow for opening an hour early to feed us before the parade. I got the biscuits and gravy which was quite tasty. I forgot to snap a photo. It was a biscuit topped with tofu scramble, greens, and gravy. I ate off the greens and tofu then got an extra side of gravy to drench he biscuits in. Yummy.

Then we walked over to the parade staging area. Lots of fun folks out and decked out in their veggie best. Demetrius of NYC Vegan Eat-up and David (aka Veggie Prom King) of Farm Sanctuary.
I walked with the Veggie Conquest group. I really dig the aprons. Here's Jessica posing with the carrot and pea Veggie Parade mascots.

The parade finished at the North end of Union Square park where there was a stage and lots of tables set up for the various veggie groups.

It was a great day to be out and about in New York. Come join the fun next year!
